Families are tough. You don’t get to choose them, and you may not fit in with them, but unless you are one of the unlucky ones, your family will never stop trying and will always have your back. The Mitchells vs The Machines is the latest film that will teach you this lesson, that no matter what is going on in your life and how much you don’t relate to them, your parents will have your back. Most people learn this over time as they grow and mature. Katie Mitchell learns on a road trip with her parents that happens to coincide with a robot uprising.
Spoiler alert, this movie is amazing.

There’s a sentence you’d never predict you’d get to say.
The end credits of 22 Jump Street are hilarious. After an entire movie of meta humour at the expense of sequels we’re treated to title cards from all the crazy ideas that might go into an ongoing franchise. And now thanks to an Imgur user you can see them all. Hooray! Note, this doesn’t spoil the movie proper but some of these are going to be way more hilarious in context. Fair warning.

Some of the funniest jokes in 22 Jump Street, including an entire montage during the end credits, were all the teasing of future sequels. These were all making fun of the notion that the studio would take their success and then run it into the ground by endlessly sequelizing it.
So now the studio is taking that success and starting to endlessly sequelize it.

Last weekend I did in fact see two movies but since I was taking the weekend off I didn’t write them up. It’s a bit late now, so here are some quick impressions in case you’re trying to decide what to see this weekend.

Every time someone makes a movie out of some property from my childhood I pretty much expect it to be a cheap cash in. Call me cynical (I do) but there it is. Fortunately this isn’t always the case and 21 Jump Street is one of the best examples of what a movie version of something from my childhood can be.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill both shine in a great story about friendship and dealing with your past which is cleverly written full of meta humour which makes fun of basically every aspect of this kind of film making. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller bring their awesome touch as well, the film has great timing and pacing. At the end of the day it’s hilarious and fun and a great addition to your library especially now as the sequel is due in a weeks time.

Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

Hey, remember in The Lego Movie how hero Emmett is a amazingly creative builder who lives across form his overbearing, controlling Mum (sorry, *Mom) who used to be a Master Builder? And how Indiana Jones tried to keep The Kragle from falling into the hands of antagonist Black Falcon and Lord Iamnotarobot? Well, Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s finished version didn’t quite turn out that way, but what we almost got is still deliciously funny in its own right. Read on!

I was worried after the first trailer that The Lego Movie might turn out to be just a toy commercial. This new trailer makes me think it might be a smart, funny toy commercial.

Because of course there is. Now, I’m pretty cynical about this kind of stuff. I mean, it’s a Lego movie; otherwise known as an extended toy commercial. However, there’s some talent behind this so let’s watch.
